On Training to be a Counsellor

Training To Be A Counsellor
Have you ever thought about training to be a counsellor? If you’re thinking of signing up for a counselling course, come and hear counsellor Catherine Drury talk about her personal experience of counselling training.
Catherine Drury is an Integrative Counsellor who practices drawing on Psychodynamic and Person Centred modalities in the main.
She worked as an Economic & Social Policy Researcher on national and International work from the late 90s. By 2010, Catherine felt that funders and policy makers were increasingly less committed to the imperative of meaningful research as an agent for evidence based policy development. Her abiding concern for progressive change and development caused her considerable internal conflict.
In 2012 she returned to Tertiary Education at Vaughan College, to explore the field of Counsellingand the prospect of a career change. In January 2017, Catherine qualified with a Foundation Degree in Integrative Counselling from the University of Leicester.
She has been a practicing counsellor for two years. Catherine is married to Chris and they have three children. She is passionate about nature (favourite place: Deeside, Scotland), music (favourite piece, Gustav Mahler’s’ 3rd Symphony) and sport (favourite team, Leinster).
